welcome to the true north ACADEMY

The True North Academy internship program is seeking rising college juniors and seniors to come to Orlando, Florida, for a summer of growth, mentorship and ministry. True North works through Northland, A Church Distributed, a megachurch located in Orlando with about a 12,000 member congregation in the local community and spread worldwide. With such a global network of believers, the focus of Northland – and the internship – is to be the church everywhere and to extend our reach to people of all ages and all nations.

During the 8-week paid internship at Northland, interns devote time to a specific department or ministry. They'll participate in work with supervisors, attend meetings with heads of various departments, and have responsibility over their own projects. Although interns will be working in one focus, True North encourages them to branch out and participate in a variety of the church’s ministries. Interns will also engage in group Bible studies, field trips and scheduled workshops every week.

True North provides housing through families of Northland’s congregation. Because transportation to and from the church will be the intern's responsibility, interns are strongly encouraged to bring their own cars to Orlando. To help cover food and fuel expenses, the program offers a stipend of $500 and $200 in gift cards each month.

True North Academy partners with several universities across the country to train students to be leaders in local churches while cultivating their reach around the world.
